Update font awesome to 5

Post by Ideas Bot » Sun May 06, 2018 6:29 pm

Currently phpbb uses font awesome 4.7 which is great, but out of date
The new Version 5 offers many more icons (>1000) as well as SVG graphics and more options.

That would be a small (nice) improvement.

I believe, and I may be wrong, that Font Awesome will be being retired for other (better) alternatives in the "new style"

Incidentally there is nothing to stop you loading version 5 in your extension if you "need" some of the new options.
